Cumarin - If you use cinnamon or mahlep pay attention


Cumarin is a substance that is naturally contained in food ingredients and it gives them an aromatic quality.

If you use cinnamon and/or mahlep in the production of ready-to-consume food products, you are required to control the amount of cumarin in the final product. The determination of the ammount of cumarin in a food product is achieved by performing a lab analysis.

In accordance with European Union Regulations, there are upper limits in the concentration of cumarin contained in ready-to-consume food products, which must be followed by the producer, in order to maintain public health.

For more information you may contact us or read the following statement that is addressed to our clients.
